Formula Drift is not what most people think of when they think of racing. This is a motorsport series where drivers are drifting around intense courses with extreme accuracy. Hyundai of St. Augustine know that the >2012 Hyundai Gensis Coupe is the right car for the job. Even Rys Millen Racing agrees with us which is the car they have been using in Formula Drift the past three years.
As we are sure you are aware, the Genesis Rys Millen Racing uses is not just any Genesis Coupe. This car is heavily modified so that it truly lives up to its potential. The Formula Drift Genesis Coupe packs more than 600 horsepower in order to ensure that it's able to maneuver as precisely as possible. Though, we think the most impressive aspect is that they did so without replacing the stock engine block or heads.
"It's thrilling when a driver of Rhys Millen's caliber combines tire-smoking power with surgical drifting precision," explains Steve Shannon, vice president of marketing, Hyundai Motor America. "Formula Drift is the best race-fan oriented example of extreme car-control driving. It's also the best competitive arena for us to highlight the rear-drive power and handling finesse of the new Genesis Coupe."1
Hyundai of St. Augustine, located at 2898 US Highway 1, St. Augustine, FL, will be keeping a close eye on the 2012 Formula Drift season. As such, we promise to update you on any exciting developments along the way.
